~~ Tolerance becomes Crime, when applied to Evil ~~
(From: “A Good Soldier” by Thomas Mann – German novelist 1875 – 1955)
At the beginning of June 2011, a new OSCE study was revealed, and widely ignored by the American Media, stating that worldwide 105,000 Christians (1 every 5 minutes) are murdered for their beliefs and their faith.
No, I am not giving a history lesson here from the medieval times; I am talking about the 21st Century and 2011.
What is the OSCE
Most Americans are familiar with the United Nations, and aware that this rather questionable organization is divided into many smaller sub-organizations operating independently from each other with one common goal – to undermine State independency of sovereign nations using UN funded NGO groups as their spearhead.
At the first view the UN appears to be red taped and absolutely chaotic where the left hand does not know what the right hand does. But that is a wrong assumption. Their independent funded NGO’s established in their respective countries work very well in their hands.
In the United States are those organizations such as the ACLU, ACORN, diverse UNIONS, self-declared “representatives of Minorities” such as the radical Terrorist tied CAIR and so forth.
The system is simple; the UN officially sponsors those groups together with the liberal Democrats. The NGO’s file Lawsuits to dismantle our constitution, our independency and destroy our social system and once this is accomplished the OSCE as the watchdog for Humans rights observes the enforcement of the new rules.
One of the organizations in the United States is rather unknown – the OSCE. And the name is here NOT program.
OSCE or in other words Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe is not limited to Europe as the name might indicate.
OSCE is the largest security-oriented intergovernmental organization in the sense of Chapter VIII of the United Nations Charter. It mandates issues such as ARMS CONTROL, Human Rights, Freedom of Press and fair elections and many more.
The headquarters is in Vienna, Austria, but only 10% of its 3,500 plus staff are stationed there the rest is engaged in field operations. The current Unites States representative to the OSCE is Ian C. Kelly with the rank of Ambassador.
In the past few years the OSCE has made a name for itself as an Israel bashing organization considering the “poor and oppressed Muslims” the victims of prejudice thinking. They’re pushing for a Palestinian state regardless of the fact that Palestinians are lead by CAIR financed, Terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, and regardless of the fact that this would put the safety of Israel at risk.
Also, for several years OSCE has ignored the fact that Christians worldwide become more and more a persecuted Religion.
But in June2011 areport from the same organization proves that this is exactly what is happening.
Mario Mauro, an OSCE Representative against racism and a member of the European Union parliament published at the Catholic Rimini meeting that there is War going on against Christians.
Worldwide 75 of 100 people that are murdered for their faith are Christians.
Mauro quotes: “On top of the list is North Korea; an atheist country prohibiting every form of religion. However: 35 of the named 50 countries are Muslim countries. This produces serious questions about the dialog between us and the majoritarian Muslim Countries. The most important countries are Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Irak, where a bloodbath is going on and Christians are forced to try to escape which causes the expedition of the destabilization of the already agonized countries”.
International Bulleting of Missionary Research published in its annual report on block 4, line 28 “Christians Martyr per year in mid 2011 – 100,000”
Mauro also states that modern dayEurope is not free of “Christophobia”. He mentions Court rulings in countries concerning the removal of the Cross in School classes or termination of employment of Christians who had the picture of Jesus at their Workplace.
But the past few years we have had the same problems in the United States. Besides the permanent attempt of Radical Muslim groups to install Sharia Law, and destroy Christianity in the United States we actually do not need the Muslims because we have the enemy within.
The Unites States is built by Judeo Christians on Judeo Christian values and our founding fathers had God in mind in every sentence they wrote in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of theUnited States.
But we have the UN and Liberal democrat funded Groups, such as ACORN, ACLU, and many other so called liberal groups that fight like lions, funded with tax Dollars to destroy Christianity piece by piece and take God out of our everyday life.
Muslims lobby for tolerance for their religion and buy a piece of property in Katy, Texas right next to a pig farm demanding that the pig farmer must move.
Atheists fly Airplanes on Independence Day 2011 with the words: “Godless America” for more tolerance for Atheists. (And if you think mainstream media has covered that insult on everything dear to the American people – think twice – this has been ignored all along).
NBC “drops” God in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Tolerance for Muslims, Atheists, Transsexuals, Homosexuals, and God knows what other sick groups run around.
But the tolerance ends on those who refuse to submit to this so called alternative lifestyle or demand to respect their heritage – the Christians.
In order to get their way so called “Interest groups” have to destroy Christianity. And the easiest way is through Lawsuits and declaring Christian positions mentally ill.
Using the word “phobia” behind everything indicates an unnecessary fear and therefore a mental illness.
At the same time they use our court system to discriminate against our faith, beliefs, moral and ethical values, and try to prohibit their use in public.
While Muslim countries openly slaughter Christians on a daily basis their representatives in America and Europe roll out their PR machinery to cover it up. By playing the part of the victims of prejudice they are trying to distract us from their violence against our Christian brothers and sisters.
~~ An appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile – hoping it will eat him last ~~
This is nothing but a legal version of Christian persecution. What really worries me is this:
Not one so called mainstream media outlet has taken on the story of the OSCE and the Christian persecution.
If 5 Muslims die or anybody dares to criticize Muslim beliefs or Sharia Law, the Media is full of defensive articles, if Christians protest against Abortion or demand their faith and beliefs need to be respected they are characterized by the media as “Radicals”.
But the fact that it is actually the Christians who are being discriminated against even in our own home country the United States is completely ignored.
And the churches are silent. The largest Christian Church the Catholics and the Pope as their leader do and say nothing about this. On the contrary they preach diversity and ally with those who try to destroy us.
We are at war: While our brothers and sisters in Christ die in Muslim countries, we fight our own battle against discrimination in our home countries.
CHRISTIANS ARE THE LARGEST PERSECUTED RELIGION IN THE MODERN DAY WORLD

For a month the turmoil’s also known as “Arab Spring” has reachedSyria. President Bashar al-Assad battles with the upmost brutality.
Thousands of dead protesters shock the world and the ultra liberal Europeans don’t seem to understand why nobody is willing to take action against the tyrannical dictator.
As usual the European Leftist media launches the standard accusation against the United States and the United nations, claiming that they don’t care about the dead because Syria has no oil to offer. Unlike Libya who is one of the richest countries in Oil and gas resources.
Europe is the largest business partner inLibya, Europe obtains the majority of its oil and gas needs (Austria for example a total of 25% of its Oil and Gas needs) from Libya.
The United States is only allowed to pay for the War they fight on behalf of the hypocritical Europeans.
But back to Syria and the claim nobody seems to care about the dead protesters and the genocide produced by the local government. Claiming economical interest or the lack of the same is way too easy and way too far from reality.
The truth is that politics is like a chess game. And every chess player knows one always thinks three moves ahead. And that is the real reason why the United Nations cannot surmount itself to harsher sanctions against Syria.
Syria is already a financially and economically challenged country and lives mostly on its banking system, providing the bank accounts not only for Saudi Countries, but also for Iran. Iran has tough UN resolutions on their back and cannot, like any other country, perform its business publically.
Syrian Banks provide the opportunity forIran to buy and sell all kinds of goods from Russia, China, and other Iran-friendly countries, performing and processing bank services. That also includes payments from and to Terror organizations.
Also, Saudi Arabian Countries finance “questionable Groups” through Syria. Payments Saudi Countries do not want the U.S.to know about in order not to jeopardize their Oil business. Criminalists would call it money laundering.
And then there is the United Nations and here is the chess game that comes in.
Between Syria and Israel is the so called UNDOF unit. United Nations Disengagement Observer Forces, with order to protect and uphold the weapons hold status between Syria and Israel.
But the UN is not an occupant and is only there because Syria agreed to it in a contract, which means if Assad feels betrayed by the UN he can easily and without giving any explanation withdraw the permission to have this unit on his soil and that would be devastating for the UN and their radical upcoming agenda in September.
Let’s play that through for the moment.
The United Nations not only strongly condemns, but also punishes Syria for its genocide even threatening military action, and Bashar al-Assad withdraws his permission having UN peacekeeping soldiers on Syrian property.
That is what Iran is waiting for. 427,000 Palestinian refugees from Lebanon will immediately come over the Golan Heights smuggler routes joining forces with 478,000 Palestinian refugees inSyria.
With practically no puffer provided by the UN forces 905,000 Palestinians will make a run forIsrael’s borders trying to overrun them.
Israel will have no other choice than to gather the majority of its troops on the Syrian border in order to stop the flood of Palestinians.
This is exactly what Ahmedinejad of Iran needs, claiming an Israeli attack on Syria, which allows him to come to the aid of his “Syrian brothers”.
Meanwhile, the borders to Gaza and the West bank are weakened and an additional 4.1 Million Palestinians (2.5 Million from the West Bank and 1.6 Million from Gaza) attack Israel seeing their chance to finally do what Hamas and Hezbollah dream of – the final destruction of Israel and the taking over of the entire country.
And if anybody thinks the remaining 2 Million Palestinians inJordan can be stopped they are a fool.
As of here the world has only 2 choices: Sit back and watchIsrael die or interfere with a combined force which will end in a long-lasting brutal war if not a world war or worse a nuclear war.
4,300 Syrian refuges are already inside Turkey, the Financial Times reports and thousands more are to be expected. In case of an outbreak of war on Syria those refugees could easily become guerilla fighters having enough support in a highly muslimized country like Turkey. The third World War would be on.
Either way the radical UN Agenda of building a Palestinian state in September recognized and accepted by the world community is nothing more than wishful thinking.
The United Nations keeps doing what they do best, hold meaningless negotiations and weak condemnations against Syria assuring that Assad is not too offended and the situation clears itself up.
That way their radical Agenda of building a Palestine State in September is not in jeopardy at all.
Bottom line is: European allegations that the world does not interfere because of lack of resources is nonsense.
The U.S. does not interfere because it is not our problem and the UN considers the slaughtered victims inSyria collateral damage for their higher Palestinian Agenda in September.
So much for a self declared humanitarian organization – United Nations
It is all about politics and Agenda

- Tom Lehner: “Israels Nightmare – forcefully back to 1967”
- Financial Times
The United Nations is well known for hiding its radical dream of being the world’s government behind their alleged humanitarian agenda.
The United Nation is also very well known for their perfidious chess games in order to reach their hidden goals and agendas.
But the pathetic and extremely dangerous game the United Nations is playing right now with Israel in order to achieve their agenda of a Palestinian State is beyond every imagination and could cost the State of Israel a lot more than just the endangerment of their country – it could cost the existence of the State of Israel period.
In my last column I wondered why the United Nations had not prevented the riot of Palestinian protesters on ‘Nakba-Day’ at the Syria/Israel weapons hold line; though they had stationed a 1,500 man strong UNDOF unit there with over 40 years of experience.
The more I think about this the more sense it makes that these “Riots” have been a “dress rehearsal” for something way bigger to come, something that is as radical as it is dangerous for the entire State of Israel and yet it is a stroke of genius in the planning.
Tunisia: When the riots started in January inTunisia and then spread throughout the northern African Muslim regions the whole world lead by the United Nations cheered for the “peaceful protesters” who wanted to take over their countries and chase their dictatorial oppressors out.
Back then I had already warned that this would be an uncontrollable wildfire and even predicted pretty accurately which country would fall. And it happened just as it had to happen and exactly as predicted by me and many of my colleague’s one country after the next fell.
After Egypt, when Obama for the first time publically supported the Muslim Brotherhood, despite all the warnings from conservative forces all over the world, the agenda and plan became a pattern though it was not yet obvious to see.
In Libya President Obama and the United Nation for the first time showed openly a sign of their agenda when they decided to support the protesters with military force. Under the cover of ‘humanitarian aid’ they decided to bomb Gaddafi troops and so interfere in an inner conflict internationally known as civil war.
Under “UN Resolution1973”NATO was authorized to impose a no-fly zone overLibyato avoid a slaughter of unarmed civilians, pledging that “This is not interference in an inner conflict and not an attack on Libya’s governmental troops or the Libyan Government”.
A pledge that has been broken several times; since the Libyan Air Force has been destroyed the UN Mandate is practically fulfilled and yet NATO keeps bombing Libyan Ground forces to support rebels, which is not covered under the UN Mandate. Even worse NATO has directed its attacks on Gaddafi’s headquarters resulting in the killing of his grandchildren.
And guess what – no protests, no outcry, or screams from any liberal UN butt kisser of the killing small children there.
Once again President Obama shows publically his support for the Muslim brotherhood and once again publically shows his support for the peaceful protesters.
Despite the continued warnings from more conservative forces that the Muslim Brotherhood is highly connected with Hamas and Al Qaeda members the Obama show must go on.
And now even in Syria, where nobody can believe it, serious riots have broken loose. But what is interesting is that the riots in Syria started on the Southside near the Jordan border not so far away from the West bank.
And again the world fully sides with the “Peaceful protesters”. But the location of the Syrian protests is very important to watch here.
On May 1st Obama took advantage of the Bush administration policy and finally ordered the kill of Osama bin Laden.
From this moment on, running from descending poll numbers to a new high altitude, POTUS used the favorableness of the hour to reignite his Middle East Policy and the first step was announcing a 2 Billion Dollar financial aid promise from the U.S. to Egypt (Debt forgiveness for 1 billion dollars and the other 1 billion dollars, free money) and then giving a shocking speech demanding Israel should withdraw to its 1967 borders (pre-war borders).
This demand was immediately shot down by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ofIsrael.
On Nakba-Day 2011 Palestinian protesters started rioting on the Israeli border and for the first time the UNDOF forces were not present to calm down the situation and it came as it had to come: the results were 12 dead and dozens wounded.
But something else happened on that day: 1 single man, ignored by the U.S. Media, managed to break through the Israeli line and flee all the way to Tel Aviv (supported by local “Israeli and French Peace movement groups”. According to newspapers he even used public transportation being unrecognized while sitting shoulder to shoulder with Israeli Soldiers.
28 year old Hassan Hijazi, an employee from the Syrian education ministry broke the border in Quneitra, a city under full control of the UNDOF forces (as I explained exactly in my last column), and fled to Jaffa a suburb of Tel Aviv.
Hijazi turned himself in demanding the right to live in that area where his forefathers lived until the creation ofIsraelin 1948, and his family lost. He also claimed thatIsraeldoes not exist and the land is allPalestine.
Meanwhile Hijazi has been expelled fromIsraeland sent back toSyria. But that is the exact danger I want to point out.
When Benjamin Netanyahu visited the White House onFriday May 20, 2011he rejected Obama’s radical idea of drawing back to the 1967 borders, calling them “indefensible” lines.
In an inimitable interview, after conferring with POUTUS Prime Minister Netanyahu not only gave Obama a lecture in world politics, but also said something very interesting at the end of the press conference.
He said quote: “After 1967 Israel has absorbed all the Jewish refugees from all over the Arab world while on the other hand the Arab world has not absorbed one single Palestinian refugee”.
The world’s reaction to this rejection and speech of the Israeli Prime Minister was just as to be expected; a constant badgering of Israel as the aggressor, his unwillingness for peace, and the allegation that Israel is the oppressor of the poor Palestinians.
But he is right. Just as the map below shows, there are over 7 Million Palestinian refugees surroundingIsrael from 5 sides.
Putting the following three facts together: a) Palestinians will push the UN in September for their own recognized State (only question is where), b) Obama publically announcing the demand of Israel to retreat back to its old borders, and c) UNDOF’s complete unresponsiveness to the riots on Nakba day. This leaves only one reasonable suspicion – THIS WAS A COLD RUN; A REHEARSAL FOR MORE TO COME.
And when we recollect the “Gaza Flotilla” where Palestinians attacked Israeli’s with sticks, baseball bats, and rocks forcing the Israeli Navy to open fire on them this whole perfidious plan makes sense when I say Nakba Day 2011 was a cold run and dress rehearsal.
Just imagine this: 7 Million “peaceful unarmed protesters” start pushing into Israel.
Israel’s military is one of the best in the world and well equipped to fight, and battle every armed conflict, but how are they supposed to react when unarmed civilians from 5 sides with sticks and stones flood the country and occupy the entire area south of the West bank?
If they shoot at them hot (with sharp ammunition) the world’s community will consider Israel the aggressor putting them in the same category with dictators and tyrants.
The bottom line is,Israelis not prepared for that and the UN knows it. All the UN needs to do is either remove its forces (UNODF and UNIFIL) or order them to stand down and let things take its course.
The world will immediately side with the Palestinian refugees andIsraelwill be doomed. Step one, in my opinion,Israelwill be forced to retreat back to its borders of 1967 and in step two Arab Forces will start a new War againstIsraelfor final destruction.
This is impossible? Just take a look at northernAfrica,Syria, and the rest of theMiddle East.
And now imagine 10 million Mexican farmers gathering on our southern borders demanding Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California back supported by the 2 million Illegal’s already inside our borders.
Imagine they start flooding our borders. Knowing that only 44% of the American Southern border is secured what would we do? Would we shoot at the flooding crowd, or would we just stay there and watch?
Just like Israelwe could not fire on the protesters or we would be outlawed in the worlds community, fences won’t hold them or stop them so please you tell me – WHAT WOULD WE DO – WHAT SHOULD ISRAEL DO?
It is going to be a Hot Summer 2011 for Israel
Pray for Israel and may
God in Heaven Bless and protect Israel and
The United States of America

How do you feel about the safety and well being of yourself and your children being jeopardized for hundreds of years for a profit of 19 Million Dollars in Tax revenue made between 2012 and 2016?
Well, that just happened on 03/30/2011 when the Texas Legislature passed the Law Bill HB 2184 by a vote of 9 Yays, 3 Nays, and 1 not voting.
This Bill in simple terms give one single private company the authorization to collect nuclear waste all across the country and dump it in Texas, while at the same time in a case of Emergency not the company, but the State of Texas accepts ownership and liability.
Endangering Texas Citizens for “probable Revenue Gain” of 19,000,000 (nineteen Million) Dollars in five years. Yes, not in one year that is a total of five years.
|Fiscal Year||Probable Net Positive/(Negative) Impact to General Revenue Related Funds|
All Funds, Five-Year Impact:
|Fiscal Year||Probable Revenue Gain/(Loss) from
General Revenue Fund
Since 03.11.2011 when a Tsunami of biblical magnitude hit the northern part of Japan and not only killed thousands of Japanese, but also destroyed the nuclear power plant of Fukoshima damaging all four reactors the entire world has been discussing the use and the safety of Nuclear Plants.
According to U.S. NRC there are 4 power plants active in the State of Texas. “Comanche Peak 1” and “Comanche Peak 2” which are located on I-40 SW of Fort Worth in central Texas, but “South Texas Project 1” and “South Texas Project 2” are located in Bay City Texas directly on the Gulf Coast in an area well known for its Hurricanes.
Like many Americans I have never wasted much thought on the danger of Nuclear power and trusted in American engineering and professionalism.
But Fukoshima taught me that even the most technologically advanced and sophisticated Country is not immune from the power of nature and its lethal force.
It is the power of Nature in combination with the greed of some businesses that really worries me.
Following the news reports all over the world it is shocking how easy it is for nuclear plant operating companies to cover up and hide dangerous incidents and accidents in their plants, even in highly overregulated socialist countries, such as Europe.
When following the news reports the talk is always about the nuclear fuel rods as being the most dangerous part of a Power plant, but there is a real hidden danger in the nuclear waste. That stuff is at least as lethal and dangerous as the actual rods.
And it’s this nuclear waste that the Texas Legislature has now permitted to be dumped in Texas; by a company with no physical experience in that area, Debra Medina reports.
1) LLW – Low Level Waste
2) WIR – Waste incidental reprocessing
3) HLW – High level Waste
4) Uranium mill tailings
But just because the Texas Legislature has determined the authorized Waste dump as LLW’s that does not mean the stuff is not dangerous.
The time frame in question when dealing with radioactive waste ranges from 10,000 to 1,000,000 years according to studies based on the effect of estimated radiation. Researchers suggest that the forecast of health detriment for such periods should be examined critically. More practical studies only consider up to 100 years as far as effective planning and cost evaluation (From Wikipedia).
Now putting this in context with a low experienced company and the fact that in any case of emergency the State of Texas takes responsibility, this 19 Million Dollars of tax revenue makes the whole thing look like a big joke.
And the Texas Legislature has not yet revealed where that nuclear Material is supposed to be stored?
And there are many things that can go terribly wrong here.
1) The company does not provide a proper financial assessment and local managers start to dump that stuff illegally
Sure, the federal government represented by the NRC is the superior controller, but let’s be honest since when has a Federal Institution run by a bunch of bureaucrats ever managed to do their job properly.
2) Material can be stolen by Terrorists
The material stored might not be weapon-grade plutonium and capable of building a nuclear bomb, but it could be used for a so called dirty bomb. Dirty bombs are small bombs with small contamination of biological, chemical, or nuclear pyrolyzed material.
3) Storage Units are targets of Terrorists
These storage Units, wherever they might be could be a target of Terrorists either for attacks or for theft, pilferage, and non-delivery.
4) Incompetent handling of Storage material and contamination of Grounds
This is not really made up out of thin air. Many previously “reputable” companies have been caught dumping their contaminated waste for economical reasons illegally or negligently.
But while chemical or biological waste has a measurable half-value-period nuclear waste when dumped negligently contaminates the ground for hundreds of years. And Texas is primarily a ranching State.
That nuclear contamination, once in the ground, can spread all over Texas. The contaminated grass can spread through pollination across the State; it will then be ingested by cattle and other animals affecting their health and then more than likely end up on your dinner table.
5) And there are many more things that can happen.
So, we have two plants right in a Hurricane area, and who is telling us that there is no way a Tsunami can hit the state of Texas? We also will now have nuclear waste dumped in our State and we the Texas Taxpayer are not only going to carry the burden of financial liability, but also take the risk of contamination.
And again, do you really think in case of an accident the information and warnings will be given out immediately or accurately? Observing (especially lately) how Nuclear Power companies deal with accidents and the release of information to the public, I doubt that.
As far as I am concerned I have already called members of the Texas Legislature to stop that nonsense and I urge you to do the same.
I am not one of those green activists or radical environmental protectors, but I am a resident of Texas, a proud Texan, and a father of a son who worries about the future and Japan has not only opened my eyes, but also made me re-think my position on this.
Call your congress rep. today!

The United States is at War again.
On March 7, 2011 – The French and the United Kingdom first pressured for the establishment of a No-Fly Zone over Libya, but backed down. As of this moment the military interference in an internal Conflict, commonly known as Civil War, was on the table.
The Arab league supported this Idea, but never intended to get involved by themselves just in case something went terribly wrong, and in a military conflict there is always a possibility to blame others.
On March 17, 2011 – the Unites Nations Security Council approved, from pressure of the French President Sarkozy, a military intervention in Libya.
“SC/10200 United Nations security council approves a ‘No-Fly Zone’ over Libya’ (1), authorizing ‘All measures’ to protect civilians.
This fungous declaration leaves a lot of room for interpretation and even more questions.
On March 19, 2011 – the First Air Strikes began in cooperation with Missile attacks from U.S. Battle ships.
President Obama has, illegally and without consent, sent U.S. Armed Forces into a conflict. Though he had plenty of time to consult with the Congress and call for an urgent emergency meeting getting Congressional Approval, President Obama decided to play Golf, pick his favorite NCAA team and travel to South America.
This action is not only highly illegal but also endangers American soldiers. Illegal because we have a constitution and the constitution is clear on when, where and how the president is authorized to engage the Armed Forces in a conflict without Congressional Approval.
The War Power Act from 1973 (2), established by the 93rd Congress after the Vietnam conflict was put in place exactly to prevent any U.S. President to engage the U.S. in a War without approval again.
More important than the Power Act is the United States constitution. Article I – Section VIII (3) rests the power to declare War solely to the United States Congress, and requires both the Commander-in-Chief AND the Congress to commit U.S. Troops; otherwise any Action would be unconstitutional.
Article II – Section II (3) of the U.S. Constitution sure identifies the U.S. President as the civilian oversight of the U.S. Military and Commander in chief, but does not allow him to use the Armed Forces to enforce its political will on foreign Nations.
March 22, 2011 – the first American Airplane, an F-15 Strike Eagle, crashes over Libya (4). And despite the statements from the Pentagon that this Jet was ‘Not’ shot down, but crashed due to technical failure the situation remains the same. According to UK Guardian the Pilots could not have known if the people who found them were friendly or non-friendly since they all were heavily armed.
Praise the Lord the Fighter Pilots are safe and well, but it could have been the other way around.
There are many questions that now rise from this situation. Speaker of the House John Boehner sent a few questions to President Obama concerning the American involvement in this “Action” I think he asked the wrong questions. So let me as ask a few here:
My first question concerns the UN Resolution – Gaddafi, Libya and the rebels
The UN Resolution declares “All necessary Measures to protect Civilians”. But what does that mean, who is a civilian in this case and who is a participant in an armed internal conflict.
In my understanding of the Geneva Convention (5) a person that is armed and participates in a violent action is not to be considered an unarmed unprotected Civilian and falls under the rules of Engagement.
Muammar al-Gaddafi should have been taken out 30 years ago. But it was the European Countries, especially France, Germany, Austria, Russia and so on who protected him and made him diplomatically eligible (6).
No matter what one thinks about Gaddafi he is the legal Head of Libya, his citizens have supported him for the past 30 years. Now the very same Citizens rebel against him.
I definitely agree and support the revolution, but this is an internal conflict and when the UN claims falsely that the western alliance is to protect “Civilians” this is a fraudulent inflammatory statement because as I mentioned above armed Civilians participating in a violent conflict are not protected under the Geneva Convention.
So here is my first question – why is the United Nations so eager to get involved in that conflict?
In my opinion the United Nations together with the French and the UK in cooperation with the European Union uses the U.S. Armed Forces to interfere illegally to overthrow a uncomfortable Dictator for economical (in favor of the European Union and NOT the U.S.) and political reasons (to strengthen Muslim radical groupings).
My next Questions go straight to the Situation of the American Soldiers.
The fact that we have never officially declared war on Libya raises many questions concerning the legal status of our Armed Forces.
Many Military experts and the NATO command already warn that, should the rebels not prevail, a Ground Force operation would be the next logical step. Taking a closer look at the fuzzy UN declaration the application of Ground Forces is not being ruled out. And that brings me to the point.
Since when – does the United Nations run our Armed Forces for their advantage? Since when is the UN in charge of our Soldiers? Ok you might say – sure since the UN puppet Obama is president – but where is the Congress on this?
What is the benefit – does that mean we now get access to the oil and gas of Libya or does that mean we spend American Tax Dollars (over 70 Million Dollars in the past 3 days in Tomahawk Missiles) to make sure the Arab league and the European Union gets the financial benefit?
What if – the fighter Jet Pilots would have been shot down, not in friendly but enemy territory? Since Gaddafi already declared that he does not accept the UN resolution, he could have considered the Pilots terrorists, spies, or God knows what and punished them at will, even execution.
What if – we send ground forces into Libya? What is the status of the conflict? Is this a Police Action, a war, an expedition – what?
And the question is not so far off because this question involves the treatment of the soldiers and their families when they come home according to the U.S. Veterans Affairs regulations.
Only Combat Veterans participating in an official declared War are eligible for the “War-veteran-Benefits” (7). Every military person knows that the benefits, retirement, and other social assistance for homecoming soldiers have a specific distinction – Soldiers in times of peace and soldiers in combat.
What happens – to the families of the fallen? Do they receive surviving dependents benefits of a soldier at war or the smaller benefits for a soldier in peace?
Remember we have never declared war officially on Libya.
Remember how long it took to accept the Vietnam Veterans legally as War Veterans? It took until 2003, under the Bush Administration to recognize veterans’ benefits for Soldiers exposed to Agent Orange (7). Or the legal battles on legally accepting the fact that Operation Desert Storm participants had been exposed to Chemical Weapons and grant the benefits for this. And it is confirmed that Gaddafi holds Mustard gas weapons.
What if – those F-15 Pilots would have been killed – what regulation would apply to them and their families left behind, since we are not at War with Libya?
Despite the legal constitutional aspect of Obama’s narcissist lone-ranger actions, where he thinks he can do whatever he feels like, once again I think he has confused his job description with that of a dictator. Here in America we have a democracy, a system with “Checks and Balances” a House body and a Senate body it is not a 1 man show; Apparently Harvard Law School no longer teaches the rules of our three branches of government.
I am sure there are tons of questions that can be asked but those are the ones that burn on my heart right now.
As far as I am concerned – all we can do is pray for our men and women in the Armed Forces for their safe return as they follow their loyal calling as Service members. God bless you and thank you for your service.
Pray that they all return home safe because our President in my opinion has not given any serious thought to this unauthorized action and its consequences.
Mr. President, Mr. Speaker of the House Boehner:
Would anybody please explain this to me or answer my questions? Since I am a citizen and a Taxpayer I am entitled to the answers.

Before I get started I want to point out that this Column is not about Austria as a Country or the Austrian People. Austria itself is a beautiful country. It has tremendous historical sites to see, and the Austrian Citizens are good, friendly, and amazing people.
What this column is all about is the hypocritical brainwashing European and Austrian Governments who, just like the Obama administration, does not give a darn about the wish and desires of their citizens, but stubbornly defend, promote and indoctrinate their socialist/Marxist/already dead multiculturalism/terrorist loving politics.
These are the facts of European Hypocrisy and their desperate attempt to downplay their own failure on the Arabian politics and their desperate attempt to cover their fawning-over of Dictators even against the wish and will of the United States.
When Listening to European News Networks over Satellite such as N-24, or Austrian ORF, it is unbelievable how desperately they live in denial of their own responsibilities.
Listening to those European politicians, these days they sure admit that they might have “misinterpreted” the one or the other situation “but not without pointing the finger at the United States on all their alleged failures” instead of accepting responsibility.
The finger pointing against the United States has already started in order to cover up that the United States did not have any economical businesses in those areas nor did we have strong diplomatic relations in that region.
The entire cover-up is of course properly transported through Government owned propaganda TV stations such as ORF as well as ultra liberal newspapers (real honest and independent Newspapers are anyway not to be found except the FAZ in Germany).
And now, especially the left wing radical Newspapers and magazines such as NEWS and Österreich under the left wing radical owner Wolfgang Fellner, don’t want to hear anything about that. Now that Media act puffed up how official Austria could have ever talked to those dictators.
This is hypocrisy all the way, knowing that Egypt was armed and equipped with American Military technology because they were the only Arab country holding a military alliance with the United States.
The rest of those radical Arab nations with ties to Terrorist Networks have been under a ban by the United States, which gave the irresponsible European Union an opportunity to sell their weapons to them. And now they try to cover that up by blaming the United States.
Let’s get a few facts straight:
1) Weapons in that area
The weapon ban against Libya was lifted by the United Nations in 2004 against the will of the United States by pressure from the European Union.
Latest news reports that European Union Companies sold alone in 2009 weapons and technology to Libya, Bahrain, Palestine, Lebanon, Tunisia, and other radical Islam countries in a net worth of at least $ 474 Million Dollars U.S. Spiegel online reports (1).
Helicopters from Italy, Fighter jets from France and Germany, Communications technology such as Internet and telephone kill switches from Germany, side arms, assault rifles and unmanned drones from Austria, Tanks from France and the UK, Crowd control weapons (used against demonstrations and to repress opposition) from the UK and Kalashnikovs from Russia just to name a few. Russia alone has an ongoing Arms deals with that region in an amount of 40 Billion Dollar, in Libya itself, 2 Billion Dollars AHN News.com (2) reports.
As a matter of fact the standard assault rifle of the Tunisian Military is the Steyr AUG 77, reported among the top ten Assault rifles, and also used by the Australian Army and many special Forces in the world made in Austria.
1) Social Acceptance of Gaddafi and his offspring
Less than a month ago they have cheered to Saiif al-Islam Gaddafi as a reformer, they have fawned over him whenever he was in Austria, his mother and sister have been well liked shopping customers in Vienna. Aisha Gaddafi was cheered in the Austrian left wing media as the “Claudia Schiffer of the middle east. Pointing out how beautiful and intelligent she was, showing strength against America when defending Saddam Hussein”.
Meanwhile, it was confirmed last week that while Gaddafi’s wife Saifya and his daughter Aisha were shopping in Vienna thousands of Libyan protesters were gunned down by Gaddafi.
Gaddafi’s son Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi studied in Vienna at the IMADEC University and in the UK, and was a well liked guest in Austrian Society, praised as a reformer. And though left wing liberals now mock against the diseased former leader of the freedom party Jörg Haider for his visits to Libya and his friendship to Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi, it was actually the former Chancellor of Austria Bruno Kreisky (3) that brought the known Terrorist back into the international community.
Saaif Gaddafi visited the Vienna Opera ball, an officiell Event hosted by the Austrian Federal Government, and holds extreme close ties to the SPOE and the Austrian Government as well as to the German Sister SPD.
Spiegel Magazine in Germany says in an article from 2004 on Gaddafi: “After a Libyan court sentenced 5 Bulgarian Nurses and a Palestinian Doctor to death in a case of contaminated Blood preservation’s Brussels pressures the from Terror pope to Lord of Peace transformed President to stop the execution of the Nurses” (From Spiegel Magazine (4): Nachdem ein libysches Gericht in einem Prozess um verseuchte Blutkonserven fünf bulgarische Krankenschwestern und einen palästinensischen Arzt zum Tode verurteilt hat, setzt Brüssel den zum Friedensfürsten gewendeten Terrorpaten unter Druck, eine Vollstreckung des Urteils zu verhindern.)
1) Political acceptance
It was Bruno Kreisky (1911 to 1990), chancellor of Austria from 1970 to 1983 that first made Muammar al-Gaddafi eligible in the international community and held close relations with him. Gaddafi himself calls him “My good friend Bruno”. The very same Bruno Kreisky that also made Yasser Arafat, leader of the Terror organization PLO, eligible and organized him to speak in front of the United Nations.
And let’s not forget Libya’s seat on the United Nations Humans rights council. Because of the acceptance of Terrorist Countries in that council, the United States boycotted them during the Bush administration, but rejoined them with Barrack Obama Fox News reports (5).
So why else do you think that Europe managed to give the slave to the UN and European Socialist/Marxist Puppet Obama the Nobel Peace Prize?
Libya got that seat, against the will of the United States, by a simple blackmail trade designed by the European Union… In order to get weapons and arms deals as well as oil and gas drilling rights for European Companies, especially Austria who was the one supporting Libya.
1) Business connections
It is also confirmed since 2011/03/01 that the Gaddafi Clan has 1.25 Billion U.S. dollars parked in cash in Austrian banks. It is also confirmed that the “Libyan Investment Authority” holds several shareholdings of Austrian Companies such as Wienerberger bricks and more.
The Libyan Central bank holds 5 % shares on the UNICREDIT Bank group, one of the largest banks in Europe with headquarters in Italy and banks throughout Europe, including the largest bank in Austria called “Bank Austria” (another socialist affiliated bank).
The largest Oil drilling company in Libya is OMV. OMV is a former government owned oil and Gas Company partially privatized in the late 90’s keeping the vast majority (25% + 1 share) in the hands of the Austrian Government. OMV is also known as being extremely affiliated with SPOE, the socialist Party of Austria. Two of the past three chancellors from the SPOE started their careers in the OMV.
Austria retains 25% of its Oil and Gas from Libya, and more than 50% of the remaining 75% is coming from Russia.
Austria was never shy to decry human’s rights violations when it came to protesting against the treatment of those “poor misunderstood” Terrorists at Gitmo. In Libya on the other hand Austria kept silent in order not to endanger its economical interests… The Gaddafi’s were well liked business partners.
So it is not a miracle that the current SPOE leadership around SPOE chancellor Faymann took their sweet time to freeze Gaddafi’s accounts and business connections calling on the European Union for guidance.
Or was it the hope of the European Union, as usual, that they would find a consensus on how to deal with Libya and still keep Austria’s business interests? Maybe the EU was hoping to reach some sort of agreement where Austria could “officially” avoid having to freeze the money and properties of the Gaddafi’s and then somehow return it to them when the dust settled.
No matter who will follow Gaddafi or any of the fallen dictators, it will be infiltrated by radical America hating Muslim groups. History has shown us that the naive hope things will turn to the better and democracy will be established is a misjudgment.
The countries are poor and the people are now expecting manna to fall from heaven and that the western world will flood them with money, but as soon as that does not happen radical Muslim Terror organizations like Al Qaeda and their pied-piper’s are going to have a feast.
We are talking about the European Union members here. Al Qaeda in Maghreb makes a living of kidnapping European Tourists and dragging them through the uncontrolled desert between Tunisia and Libya. From the ransom money they finance their Terror attacks on America.
The European Union knows about that and though, officially not negotiating with Terrorists, they had no shame in using Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi’s alleged charity foundation and Saaif himself to negotiate and pay the ransom. The fact is that the European Union finances Terrorism through the backdoor, which they apparently consider the lesser evil.
And the European Union has now the impertinence to put the blame of the northern Africa situation on us the United States. A situation they caused, it was the European opportunists who accepted and snuggled the past centuries with those Terrorists and now when it comes to taking responsibility for their idiotic politics they want to point the finger at us.
But that is normal for them: They want us THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to solve their problems and once we solve them we should get the hell out of Dodge and leave those Europeans the field of business.
Sure, with Obama that might work, but not with the rest of America. And Obama with the help of God Almighty will soon be history and a one-term president.
Did Obama screw the situation: Definitely.
When I asked on Facebook: Is Obama 1) way over his head on that situation, or b) incompetent or c) too dumb to handle it, well he is none of that.
He knows what he is doing. He is playing that regions economy right into the hands of the European Union and the radical Muslim Terrorists (see my previous column) (7).

February 11, 2011; approximately 11 am EST President Mubarak fled from Cairo in a helicopter to Sham El-Sheik going in exile and his Vice-president Suleiman declared on Egyptian TV the resignation of President Mubarak and the power of Egypt given to the Military Council taking over official functions.
The world, and especially liberal American Mainstream media and European News and governments cheer in support of the victory of the “peaceful protesters”.
One quote comes to my mind seeing and hearing this and that is:
Lord forgive them for they know not what they do
Incompetence is a wonderful thing – for those who don’t have any responsibilities and whose actions really don’t make a difference.
But there are people out there like Business people, Politicians, and yes even Anchors of News media who can influence millions of people by the way they deliver news, those people have a huge responsibility. Every decision they make, every public appearance and public statement they make, changes not only the lives of those directly involved but also in a long string of people connected to them.
Every responsible business man when facing situations that he knows will affect the entire landscape of his business and will affect thousands of people does not just make simple bold statements. He uses foresight, plans ahead, and evaluates situations and outcomes and effects on others.
And when this person is a President of a country this person needs to understand that every action he takes has a magnitude of effect not only for his own country and their military, economical and political situation, but also effects several entire countries and in Obama’s case even several continents.
It is extremely dangerous not only for a country or region, no in the case of Egypt, for not less than 4 Continents, when Obama keeps following his political and ideological “Pro-Islam” agenda. And his incompetency and lack of foresight and capability to look beyond the rim seeing the possible danger in the future will be affecting millions of people.
On “American Thinker” Ed Lasky states in his column “Obama’s role in empowering the Muslim Brotherhood” that Obama is far away from being out in the front of the crisis but his actions badly damage American interests – perhaps irretrievably. And he is 100% right there.
When I warned on 2011/01/21 in my column “Tunisia – the ignored danger to America” about the wide spread possibility to a conflagration to that area and sent this to almost every major Newspaper, Conservative online media and others at best ignored me. But now the situation proves I was right.
Let’s take another closer look at the map one more time:
Or more up-close:
Basically what you see there is an entire region filled with Al-Qaida supported radical, unstable countries surrounding Israel and with a direct access to Europe.
Right after Tunisia (who is less than 100 miles away from Italy and has a daily ferry boat traveling across the Mediterranean Sea) and Egypt, the countries Algeria, Yemen and last week also Syria is where the first turmoil’s and protests started. Jordan’s king Abdullah had to release his entire government and allow some Palestinian representatives (Palestinian Emigrants make 70% of the Jordan population) in the government.
Some blue-eyed and ignorant people might say that this was only a short flare-up of protests and does not really mean a thing. I say otherwise.
I say there is method behind it and the method is simple: if all 9 countries mentioned in my column start revolting at the same time the world would immediately be alarmed. European Governments and American Government under Obama will have a hard time explaining the continued support of the Muslim groups in that region.
And their constant preaching of diversity and multiculturalism, knowing that the very same is dead, will be exposed as what it is – a failure. David Cameron, the British Prime minister was the first official recognizing publicly in the Wall Street Journal what WE THE PEOPLE already knew all along.
And the Muslim brotherhood will lose the support of those Governments who stubbornly defend them as non-radicals.
It is not the one with the bomb around the waste I am scared of, it is the one in the background, the one I don’t see, the organizer and manager, the man with the laptop and college education I am scared of.
Al-Qaida Terrorists are uneducated, poor, and dumb people, but never underestimate the leadership of these terrorist groups. Nevertheless, we and the Europeans have educated most of them, meaning they, before becoming Terrorists, visited American and European Universities.
Again, the fact that miraculously the turmoil in those other countries has stopped is not because the local dictators have such power.
The real reason is that Al-Qaida knows that the only way to gain absolute power, assure the support of the European Governments and blindfolding the Liberal biased media is by taking one country at a time and selling these revolutions as revolutions of the intellectual, poor, and oppressed youth.
This way they can play the victim card, call on the sympathy of the European and American public because all they want is a better life and stay under the radar of the Intelligence community.
Conservative opposition as well as warning voices is being silenced by the liberal governments and their will faring liberal biased media.
One country at a time will fall into the hands of Al-Qaida. Not to forget the resources that falls into their hands too.
First was Tunisia and now is Egypt.
European news reports today, that since Mubarak refuses to stand down and has only made a shady offer the Army will push the government out and take control over the country until the elections in the fall.
Throughout the past 18 days, the time since the Egypt revolt began, the European news media has not gotten tired of making statements that the Muslim brotherhood is not an immediate threat. Because they were not the ones that actually started the Revolution, but instead they have played a secondary role in it.
Then again – it is not the one that starts the revolution I am scared of, because revolutions are usually started out of good intensions. I am scared of the one that takes advantage of it.
And the Muslim Brotherhood is a factor to be considered. At the last election in Egypt they had 25% of the voter’s voices. According to analyst Tammy Bruce, the second in command of the Muslim brotherhood is a 100% Al-Qaida operative.
Experience tells us that radical groups know how to push or manipulate elections. And also the latest experiences show and prove that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has no problems whatsoever in using Terror as a weapon of intimidation against Christians or liberating forces.
The conclusion is that once the Military gives free elections, radical groups of the Muslim brotherhood will have, and gain the absolute power in Egypt using terror to prevent the opposition to going to the polls.
This is the very same Muslim Brotherhood Obama so secretly enforces by supporting CAIR who on the other side publically lobby against Mubarak WND reports.
Now I am not a fan of Mubarak, but one thing is for sure, he has a lot more insight with regards to the situation than Obama. I am convinced he knows that once he steps down without leaving behind a stable and western oriented Government, assuring that the Muslim Brotherhood does not gain too much power, the entire region is a tinderbox that will explode and fall into radical muslimization.
Let’s clarify that: There was a reason behind Mubarak prohibiting the Muslim Brotherhood from being a party and participating in government.
He also knows that once that fire of revolution spreads that Israel will fall into destruction because they are surrounded by enemies bound to annihilate them without any protection whatsoever. Until now they at least had the United States and the powerful Egyptian Army supplied with American weapons that protected them.
Leaving me with only three possibilities:
a) Obama is really that dumb and incompetent and he does not see the danger that can come from this situation
I refuse to believe that. Secretary Clinton is, other than Obama, not a rooky. She spent 8 years on the side of her Husband former President Bill Clinton involved more or less directly in international politics and affairs. Assuming that she does not see the danger is not to be believed.
Mubarak needs to go, that is a fact. But not as Obama wants it right now. If the United States is really interested in preserving its position in that region, Clinton needs to work on a Government after Mubarak, assuring that American interests are preserved. But obviously Obama has no intention in doing so. The fact of the matter is his bold demands of Mubarak leaving right now shows he wants to leave an unstable country behind.
But that leaves me with only two other options and those are:
b) This is by design on Obama’s part and he is willing, and working hard to support the destabilization of the free world as we know it, the support of radical Islam, and the destruction of Israel.
Because one thing is for sure, once that tinderbox explodes, Israel is doomed and they cannot count on Obama or the United Nations.
And that is, in my opinion, Treason at its purest and most dangerous form; jeopardizing the entire American Continent, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East – 4 Continents presented to the radical Muslims on a silver platter. And the third option no less dangerous:
c) Hillary Clintons lets Obama run into the wall on purpose in order to position herself as the next Presidential candidate in 2012.
All she needs to do is put herself in the position of a subordinate and let Obama have his will and when election time comes she can use his failure to strengthen American Interests in the Middle East and weaken our ally Israel against Obama. Pounding on the endangering of Israel will assure her the support of the Jewish community.
Hillary Clinton is a cold blooded politician who uses everything necessary to get what she wants, even if that costs innocent lives in a foreign country. If only one of those three options is the case than….
May God have mercy on us, Bless us, and definitely
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
What really puzzled me the past few days was that not one of the major Media’s or Columnists seems to pay attention to the northern African Country of Tunisia.
Tunisia was past decades pretty much the Cancun for the Europeans, focusing on Tourists, primarily from Europe.
Predominantly a Muslim Country, Tunisia was very progressive and did not forcefully insist on radical Muslim rules such as Sharia Law. As a matter of fact Tunisia allowed the building of Hotel resorts, organized Hog and other Jungle Animal Hunting tours and used its breath taking access to the Mediterranean See to offer its shore for Tourism. True to the motto: “1001 night meets western civilization”.
But there has also always been a certain danger in this self declared Wonderland. If Tourists went too far into the southern part of the country, away from the primary Tourist sections, they exposed themselves to Kidnapping by the African Branch of Taliban and Al Qaida. And they were brutally active.
The system was simple: Stay away from Americans and target primarily Europeans. Since the majority of the Tourists are Europeans those Terrorists could be sure that the countries paid the ransom and so they financed their Terror attacks all over the world.
Oh and if you think they are not a threat just think of the past few caught Terrorists in American such as the “Underwear Christmas Bomber” – they all came from Africa.
The landscape as well as the lack of border patrols between the northern African Countries and as well as the fact that the majority of the local Law enforcement (if that’s what you want to call them) is highly corrupt and cooperates with the terrorists makes it easy for those to kidnap and disappear in the deserts between, the countries.
In most cases of kidnapping Muammar Al Gaddafi’s son Islam al Gaddafi, educated in Austria/Europe and connected with excellent ties to European Governments, acts as the local off-the- record negotiator and official point of contact to the “extremists” to buy kidnapped people free.
But the peace is over. This La-La-Fantasy of east meets west and we all go along show has come to an end.
On January 15th of 2011 the people in Tunisia revolted against the current Government and forced the President and his wife to flee for asylum to Saudi Arabia.
While the government and especially the, since 23 years reigning President Zine El Abidene Ben Ali (74) and his wife Leila Ben Ali, got richer and richer on the tremendous income from the Tourists the people of the country hardly ever got anything from the riches.
As a matter of fact the common populace was starving and lived in poverty with rising prices for food and gas and decreasing income.
Now there is a revolution in Tunis. Rumors have it that Leila Ben Ali and her Husband fled the country with 1.5 tons of Gold. The latest news was that the, on January 18th 2011 installed interims government where finally the previous forbidden opposition became three seats lasted exactly 2 hours when those three resigned.
But what does that has to do with us in the United States?
The most easy-to-be-influenced people as recruit for radical Muslims terrorist organizations are young people with low education, poor, unemployed and frustrated with the government and disappointed with the loss of “Muslim Moral Values”.
The promises of a better afterlife if they sacrifice their life in suicide Missions against the preferred Enemy Israel and America and the outlook that their family’s are forever financially supported by terrorist leaders makes the decision to join Al Qaida or the Taliban easy for them.
All it takes for the pied piper of Muslim recruiters is to promise a better future and put the blame first on the Europeans calling them Puppets of the Imperialistic Americans and call for the their destruction.
Most people when thinking of Africa see poor black African People with colorful cloth, wonderful Jungles and an amazing fauna, living mostly of charity from the West, and that since over 60 years.
But that is central Africa. Northern Africa is mostly Arabic descent.
And in the entire northern African region you have plenty of all of the necessary ingredients for future terrorists. You have Muslims, you have poverty and you have frustration and unemployment and the enemy right in plain few to blame.
Daniel Pipes of Washington Times calls it “Turmoil in Tunisia – Political upheaval could trigger revolution in other Islamic Countries” (Source – Washington Times: http://is.gd/wt5JUk).
Washington Times by the way is the only newspaper that at least mentions that threat.
While the United States is focusing on the Middle Eastern Countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and others to fight the war on Terror, this sleeping Lion is just about to arise and Terrors specialists in Europe warn for the longest time that the primary Terror threat has become Northern Africa.
Here is a map of that region. I added some numbers on the Countries who are lead by dictators and where the next Islamic revolution is to be expected. Below the picture I number down the countries and explain to you why.
1 – Tunisia: In December of 2010 a young unemployed man committed suicide through “self-immolation (by burning)” because of desperation. This self-immolation ignited outright wave of protest and lead finally in the current revolution and to the fall of President Zine el Abidene Ali.
2 – Algeria: The authoritarian President Bouteflika reigns since 1999. 2008 he pushed for a “reform” of the Constitution assuring himself life-long presidency. Violent demonstrations of the youth are continuous. The last Civil War with more than 150,000 dead is not long ago. Islamists are extreme radical and military rules with the most brutal methods.
Here as well people have committed Suicide through “self-immolation”.
3 – Mauretania: an Islamic Republic on the northwest shores of Africa right on the Atlantic with direct borders to Algeria, Mali, Senegal, and Morocco and sizes ¾ of Texas. Mauretania is officially a Presidential republic but since a Military coup in 2008 Mauretania is a military Dictatorship. The current President is “General Mohammed Ould Abdel Aziz”. He was from 2008 to 2009 the Chairman of the High state Council (haut conseil d’etat) and won 2009 the Presidential Election. He has the military behind himself but the poverty and unemployment in this country is huge and Islamist infiltrating Mauretania sure becomes more radical on a daily base.
Just recent people have committed suicide in Mauretania through so called “self-immolation (by burning)” as protest against the government. This by the way becomes common practice in this region.
His successor will be his son Islam al Gaddafi who has been educated in Western Europe such as Switzerland and Austria.
With his Oil and Gas and the fact that Libyans are usually not really war-loving people he holds himself pretty good in power. Islam al Gaddafi runs a charity foundation to distribute wealth to the people. Some say that is a better money laundry for Terrorists because as I mentioned before through this charity he also passes on ransom money to the very same.
The real problem is the size of the country and the corrupt not-existing Border patrols to the desert in the south and south-west. This is Al Qaida country and the African Arm of them moves there pretty much unperceived and unmolested.
5 – Egypt: is the only previous member of the Arab alliance who first attacked Israel in 1967 (six-day-War) and later with Syria in the Yom Kippur attack in 1973 that turned from a member of the Soviet Union Alliance to alliance with the United States of America. Egypt is also the only previous member of the same Arab Alliance that made a peace treaty with Israel and accepted the same according to the law of nations.
Performing a constant balancing act between an open country using its historical sites and amazing history as tourist attractions and the more and more influential majority Muslim population President Mubarak’s position is rather shaky. The question about his successor is imminent and should he push his son through is the military his biggest opponent. Also radical Muslim groups attack more and more Tourists which makes this region easily combustible.
Opposition is oppressed, demonstrations are prohibited but the press is freer than in Tunisia.
Egypt made the headlines lately through the suicide bombing of the Coptic Christians on New Year’s Eve 2010/2011, which show quit the explosive cultural and religious situation there.
On Monday the 10th of January 2011 and man tried to self-immolate himself because of protest against the Parliament in Cairo. According to media a taxi driver doused the fire and the man was brought to the hospital.
6 – Morocco: Social tenseness is eminent. But the country is tight monitored. King Mohammed VI is in power since 1999. He is political and spiritual leader of the Country. The major turmoil’s are in the West Sahara. The problem is the liberalization of the country. This brings major friction with the radical Muslims in this area.
7 – Jordan: The current situation in Jordan is at best absurd. 70% of the population are immigrated Palestinians. King Abdullah II and his wife Rania Al-Yassin are pro western and highly respected. But his balancing act between liberalization and fulfilling the needs of the radical Muslim Palestinians in this country brings tension and he faces a strong opposition. Other than the rest of the Arab countries Jordan does not have any natural resources on commodities. Its economy is depending on foreign aid, mostly from the United States. His thrown could be in jeopardy.
8 – Syria: Bashar al-Assad (45) did never want to go into politics. He wanted to become an Eye doctor and studies in Damascus and London. He speaks English and French. The son of Hafez al-Assad (President of Syria from 1970 – 2000) inherited the presidency.
It is a so called hereditary monarchy. Since 1963 the Baath Party is the strongest single force in this country. Attempts to reform the country have been stopped immediately. The party and the Military were worried to lose its influence. Opposition is oppressed and economy is central organized, media tight under control.
Poverty, corruption and unemployment are eminent. The government reacted to the latest turmoil’s with more social benefits. Syria is pretty calm at the moment; his agreement with the UN to allow foreign forces to cross their territory for liberating Kuwait was not really appreciated in the Arab World. Syria also wants to move forward on a peace negotiation with Israel which is not well liked in the Arab world as well. Right now Syria is isolated and depends on his bank system being the banker for Saudi Arabia and Iran. Radical Muslim forces are not happy with the liberal leadership of President Assad.
9 – Yemen: Al Qaida terrorists, Shiite Rebels, and separatists. President Saleh, in power since 1978, has a lot of pressure.
None of the above named governments are strong established and at best shaky. Should those countries fall into Islamic revolutions is this a disaster for the entire world. Combining this with the already radical Muslim countries in Central Africa such as Somalia and others and we will have a problem on our hand we cannot control.
AGAIN THE CHRISTMAS BOMBER/UNDERWEAR BOMBER WAS FROM THIS REGION – and the U.S. Government back than told us that this was a single incident and there is no imminent danger going out from Africa.
Radical Muslims, Al Qaida, and other terrorist groupings will control and regulate an inexhaustible amount of Gold, Oil and Diamonds the preferred currency of illegal weapons trafficker; I would say this makes Al Qaida the richest Terrorist organization on the planet.
Not to forget that they have a multi-million people recruiting pool of poor undereducated, and angry young man with a major hatred for the rich and prosperous United States and the European Union.
Now please tell me again why the White House, National Security council, mainstream Media, yet even the most respected Columnists like Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbough and all the others ignore this present and scary danger?
WHERE IS THE OUTCRY AND THE DEMAND TO GIVE US ANY INPUT AS OFF HOW OBAMA THINKS TO HANDLE THIS PROBLEM
This is not an African Problem, maybe at the moment but it WILL BE A PROBLEM FOR THE UNITED STATES AND THE ENTIRE WORLD.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
